Hipcamp Awards 2024: Best Tent Campsites in the US

To help you find the best camping in the country, each year we compile data from bookings, reviews, and ratings across more than 500,000 available sites. We use this to identify top-performing Hipcamp properties and crown the best Hipcamps in America for the Hipcamp Awards—just in time for camping season!

In highlighting the best tent campsites in the US, we took a bird’s-eye view to determine which Hipcamps are providing consistently stellar experiences. Competition was extremely fierce, and we are confident that these are among the very best campgrounds in the world.

We’re so thankful to have all of our Hipcamp Hosts as part of our community, and we’re so proud of all Hosts who provide unforgettable experiences all year long! Here’s to many more nights under the stars. How were winners selected?
